About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Food ambience wine list rooms and service and staff excellent. Comfy bed. Nice toiletries. It was a fun place to stay. We would not stay anywhere else in Hobart. Islington even made us a toasted sandwich dinner when we arrived, exhausted. Nothing a problem and the toasted sandwich was perfect! Thank you. Also, we got great car hire service and good prices from local outfit Drive Car Hire, who delivered and picked up from the Islington, for no additional charge. So easy to deal with. A nice clean Honda Civic. Went like a charm. Also, go see MONA.

Review:   Had an amazing two night stay here with my hubby and we both fell in love with the place. The splurge to stay here was well worth it, totally recommend it (we will be back!!) We had the garden room which had beautiful & relaxing views out to Mt Wellington, enjoyed many hours in front of the communal fire place roasting marshmallows while sipping on a glass of bubbles.
